No other place mixes affordability, opportunity, and wealth like Minnesota. What’s its secret?

"The secret is you have to be white."

In Politico, Taylor Gee writes:

"The Twin Cities, it turns out, are also home to some of the worst racial disparities in the country. In metrics across the board—household income, unemployment rates, poverty rates and education attainment—the gap between white people and people of color is significantly larger in Minnesota than it is most everywhere else. Earlier this year, WalletHub used government data to measure financial inequality among racial groups in each state and found that in 2015, Minnesota ranked dead last overall."
